The front cover of the first number of The London Philatelist, Vol. 1, No. 1, January 1892. Scanned from an illustration in a modern edition of the same magazine.

The London Philatelist was first published in January 1892[1] and is the journal of the Royal Philatelic Society London.

It is published ten times annually and includes coverage of worldwide philatelic and postal history topics. A substantial part of the journal is composed of original work, usually by members who may have given a display on their topic at the society meetings.

The entire backrun of The London Philatelist from 1892 to the 2000s is available as a set of searchable DVDs which give access to images of the original articles and illustrations.
